FOLLOWING on from the massive success of an arts festival which straddled two towns, organisers have even more in store for next year.

WemsFest saw hundreds of people enjoying concerts, talks and delicious food at venues across Emsworth and Westbourne over the last two weeks in September.

It was so popular that organiser Mark Ringwood, from Emsworth, has decided it will be back next year along with two smaller events.

Mr Ringwood said: ‘WemsFest seems to have ticked all the right boxes.

‘More than 40 events were extremely well-supported with several completely selling out. Plans are now being laid for WemsFest 2013 and also two additional mini-festivals – a PG Wodehouse festival, and the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Both have significant relevance to the Westbourne-Emsworth area.

‘I would like to thank the general public who supported WemsFest, and the venues who kindly hosted all the events.’
